'Extraordinary'  National winner Corach Rambler 'deserves greatness'

The Grand National winner has also won a double at the Cheltenham Festival.

Grand National winning horse Corach Rambler “deserves to have greatness” and will now “go down in the history books” after his win at Aintree on Saturday.

The victory at the flagship racing event was the second in six years for Kinross trainer Lucinda Russell after her success with One For Arthur in 2017.

As a double winner at Cheltenham, Corach Rambler went into the race as favourite and never looked back after taking the lead at the final fence.

Russell, and her training partner Peter Scudamore, have heaped praise on the “extraordinary” horse after the win.

Speaking to STV, Scudamore said: “It’s funny, It’s not so much a celebration. It’s a quiet satisfaction.

“And I think that we’ve always wanted people to know that this is an extraordinary horse, and he’s explained it
better than we ever could in words.”

Russell added: “I always said that he’s a horse that deserves greatness and to go down in the history books and, you know, with winning the grand national he just has done.”
